lyrics

I was raised on Merle Haggard, Waylon, and Willie
Hank Williams, and Johnny Cash too
Honky Tonk Angels, fast trains, and Outlaws
Songs about feeling and truth
They talked about the heartache, freedom, and hard days
Put into words how you felt inside
Then came that lonesome day, when it all went away
And that real country music said goodbye

Pop went the country
Now it's all about the money
They forgot about the old ways
Made a change to make some quick change
Bout time they add some more Hank
If this is a joke, it ain't funny
On the air Monday through Sunday
Pop went the country

Now I'm not naive-Ya see, I know times are changin'
But I can't pretend that everything's alright
This here today and gone tomorrow, “manufactured music” is where I think we need to draw the line
Cause there's a reason legends still are legends, and classic songs are classic
Cause things coming from the heart will always last
So, let's get back to the real, and get behind the wheel
And put this country music back on track

Cause Pop went the country
Now it's all about the money
They forgot about the old ways
Made a change to make some quick change
Bout time they add some more Hank
If this is a joke, it ain't funny
On the air Monday through Sunday-Pop went the country
'Round the clock Monday through Sunday
Pop went the country
